Transfer Point Solutions

Belt Support

By supporting the belt, especially under transfer points, you can reduce damage and equipment will last longer.

Our belt support products absorb the force of falling material at transfer points, minimizing damage and excessive wear to the belt and structure. This also cuts down on fugitive material and runaway dust, which can cause substantial health and safety hazards. Our belt support products also eliminate pinch points where trapped material can gouge the belt and over time, compromise its structural integrity.

We also source products that can be installed wherever they are needed to eliminate sagging, as well as products that support the belt during the return. Martin belt support products are available to support a range of belt widths and can even be customized to accommodate unique conditions when necessary.
